The Post-Crisis Legitimacy of the European Union (PLATO) is an EU-funded PhD network coordinated by Prof. Chris Lord at ARENA. It brings together nine university partners from across Europe to recruit a group of 15 PhD researchers to undertake a common multidisciplinary investigation into the EU's responses to the financial crisis, which has raised new questions about the EU's legitimacy.
